31DC2017Weekly 11: Polka Dots

This week’s prompt for the 31DCWeekly is polka dots and there is nothing in the nail art sphere that makes me as happy & nostalgic as doing polka dot nails! As I’m sure is the case for many others, this was my doorway into the nail art world and I spent a good year using… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 11: Polka Dots

31DC2017Weekly 10: Rainbow Gradient

My mother says I must have been born upside down. As soon as I’m told not to do something, that’s the only thing in the world that appeals to me. So, today, on this day of mothers, I present the one thing I wasn’t ever going to do voluntarily: a rainbow gradient! Happy Mothers’ Day,… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 10: Rainbow Gradient

NOTW: Swirls and Jellyfish

Hello, again! Here is some nail art I did using Tonic Polish Incandescent as the base. If you want to see swatches and some cool bottle shots of this polish, check out this post. I did two variations; both are pretty much the same, just using different stamping plates. I love how black looks over… Continue reading NOTW: Swirls and Jellyfish

31DC2017Weekly 9: Feline Rainbow

I’m alive!!! The past month has been insane, but I survived & I’m back with the 31DC prompt of rainbow nails. Now, rainbow nails are definitely not my buzz, but I tried… I have two versions; one I did by mistake the week of the metallic prompt (on the left below), and then I redid… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 9: Feline Rainbow

31DC2017Weekly 8: Metallic

I’ll be glad to be done with posting metallic nails for this challenge. I don’t like wearing metallic polish as a base colour, but I stamp with them all the time. In fact, just a little while ago, I bought a few more foils from Color Club to stamp with. Yet, this is probably the… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 8: Metallic

NOTW: Multiple Multichromes!

So… about the prompt being “rainbow” for this week’s 31DC: I messed up! I did my rainbow nails yesterday to post today, but it turns out that it’s “metallic” this week. I’ll do my metallic nails over the weekend; for now I have a NOTW for you. Mr ACD was away last weekend and I… Continue reading NOTW: Multiple Multichromes!

31DC2017Weekly 7: Black & White

Hello! As they say, when it rains, it pours; and so it is with my blogging this week. I not only posted thrice this week, but the two I did today were rather wordy. Mr. ACD is away for the weekend, and I haven’t really spoken much for two days now; my brain is not… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 7: Black & White

NOTW: Dessert Sands

Hello, folks! I chopped off my long nails on a whim late last week, in the spirit of spring & new beginnings. I regretted it almost immediately, but am beginning to appreciate how I can be a little less careful in day-to-day activities now that I have much shorter nails. This manicure is the last… Continue reading NOTW: Dessert Sands

31DC2017Weekly 6: The Purple Elephants In The Room

It’s Week 6 of the 31DC2017Weekly, and I will admit I’m a little glad that I can now stop doing white middle & ring fingers! No one asked me to, true, but I noticed that was what I had done for three consecutive weeks and decided to continue until the end of the colour prompts.… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 6: The Purple Elephants In The Room

NOTW: Butterfly Blobbicure

Hello, there! I’ve been getting into blobbicures recently. They are very easy to do and can look really organic & nice. I saw a video by Eugenia (@laqvid) recently — she does the most amazing blobbicures & wet-on-wet manis — and decided to give this design a try: I’m very happy with how this turned out,… Continue reading NOTW: Butterfly Blobbicure
